The former GP2 driver was 0.895 seconds clear of the field as he lapped the track in 1m47.581s. Dino Zamparelli took second place, just ahead of Matheo Tuscher, with Daniel McKenzie fourth.

Series newcomer Axcil Jefferies showed superb form to go fifth quickest, having been as high as second at one stage.

Morning pacesetter Alex Fontana was seventh and championship leader Luciano Bacheta - who has a 100 per cent win rate from the four rounds held so far - was back in 11th.

The session was briefly red-flagged after Zamparelli spun at Turn 6. Max Snegirev also had an incident, stranding his car in the Turn 7 gravel.
